Old Settlers Festival (Near Austin Texas) Oct, 21-24 2021

Oct 21-24 2021 with early camping starting Sunday Oct 17

It sure would be great to have some of the Telluride Bluegrass family in Texas for Old Settlers.
Great vibe, the folks at OSF will make you feel like family Day 1.

Another good thing, you can sit on the fence about going due to camping, parking, RV spots
do not sell out.

Check this out for a taste of OSF.


Just in case Telluride Bluegrass is canceled for 2021.
OSF could be your backup plan for your Bluegrass Festival fix.

Another great video on the vibe at OSF. Your going to think they are talking about Telluride Bluegrass.
As a matter of fact, they are talking about Telluride Bluegrass at 8:50.


Looks good Fred! Our only issue with OSF is it always happens during the school year. Moving to October there’s a good possibility Fall break will be that week. So for once OSF may be doable.


From Telluride Blues Festival

Currently, we are planning to celebrate the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival in Telluride Town Park on September 17-19, 2021, but only if it is safe to do so. We are working closely with health officials, while monitoring the success of the vaccines and keeping an eye on the changing state of live events for this summer. When we have a clearer picture of what events will look like and receive a “green light” from officials, we will provide additional updates.

Tickets for the 2021 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival will not go on sale until we know it will be safe to host an event. Until that time, all other festival announcements will be paused. For those who have rolled over your 2020 tickets we are grateful for your faith in our festival and no action is needed at this time - your tickets are in our system and will soon be re-issued with the 2021 dates. Most of the artists scheduled to perform have expressed interest in this year’s dates, likely leaving a similar lineup in place for 2021.



Another good one.


Please ask if you have any questions about OSF.

fyi: Austin, Texas International Airport is 45 minutes from the festival.

If camping is not your thing there are several options nearby.
From their website.

Hey Fred,

How are you holding up? Hope you have heat and water!

Thanks for asking Todd. We lost power last night but was lucky today and able
to find a generator. This is the coolest Houston has been for us in the 30 years
we’ve lived here. Next week the forecast is in the 70s. Looking forward to seeing
you in June!


Still waiting on their lineup. Fingers crossed that the country does
not shut back down.

Their new website went live today. (Monday 8/16)
Sounds like we have to wait another week for the 2021 lineup.

Hey Fred, We are excited to say the website went live today, but disappointed that we had to move the lineup announcement and tickets sales back a week. Thank you for your patience, Diana – Old Settler’s Music Festival October 21-24, 2021
